Now, I don't claim to know a lot about economics, but I think that its a GREAT sign that the current volume at TradeHill is about equal to that of Mt. Gox.  It almost seems like the market is creating its own checks and balances (albeit this is a narrow perspective given that the volume at Mt. Gox fluctuated between 100,000 and 10,000 within 2  days).  Any thoughts about having near-equal volumes among several exchanges?  What does this mean for volatility vs. stability?

Just checked the ticker now.  Tradehill at 52k, Mt. Gox at 46k.

Ok, so explain to me where I made my error when it says 52,000+ for volume when I check Tradehill API ticker, and 46,000+ for volume when I check Mt. Gox API ticker.  I sure hope you guys aren't the Bitcoin welcoming committee, "senior members."

Did you look at: https://api.tradehill.com/APIv1/USD/Ticker ? If so, the volume returned is USD. Which is quite confusing, I agree.

Thank you.  That makes sense then.  I was off by the ratio of BTC:USD.

Hey, sorry, don't want you to get that impression.

bitcoincharts.com is what I use for easy reference. Never seen TradeHill even get close to mtgox. I just felt let down when I thought you might have a point in the OP and then I checked stats and they were nothing out of the ordinary. It made it seem like you were a TradeHill shill or whatever.

Again, my bad.

No worries.  I'm disappointed too.  I started doing this post-gox crash, and, naturally, I now prefer TradeHill.  I had read on here how the volume at Gox is ten times greater, so when I started using the ticker and saw similar volumes, I thought something good was happening.  My bad as well.
